"My students made six times more As...why hasn't anyone thought of this before?" - Melissa Skinner, High School English Teacher No longer do students have to try to memorize long boring vocabulary lists by using archaic rote memory techniques. Vocabulary Cartoons makes learning vocabulary fun and easy by using brain-friendly memory aids in the form of visual and rhyming mnemonics. A mnemonic is a device used to improve memory. It helps you remember something by associating it with something you already know. Mnemonic devices have been used in many forms including keywords, acronyms, rhymes, poems, songs and visual aids. For example, you may remember this mnemonic from grade school, "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in fourteen hundred ninety-two." This helps you remember when Chistopher Columbus discovered America. Vocabulary Cartoons incorporates a visual and rhyming mnemonic for every vocabulary word. Students learned 72% more words with 90% retention in actual school tests. This book is a must for visual learners, ADD, ESE and all college bound students. Excellent teaching resource for improving standardized test scores like the common core, SAT, and ACT. All 290 words found in this book are taken from SAT and ACT word lists and after every ten words there is a matching and fill-in-the-blank review quiz. Recommended for 7th - 12th grade students.

The White Album

An extraordinary report on the aftermath of the 1960s in America by the New York Times–bestselling author of South and West and Slouching Towards Bethlehem. In this landmark essay collection, Joan Didion brilliantly interweaves her own “bad dreams” with those of a nation confronting the dark underside of 1960s counterculture. From a jailhouse visit to Black Panther Party cofounder Huey Newton to witnessing First Lady of California Nancy Reagan pretend to pick flowers for the benefit of news cameras, Didion captures the paranoia and absurdity of the era with her signature blend of irony and insight. She takes readers to the “giddily splendid” Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the cool mountains of Bogotá, and the Jordanian Desert, where Bishop James Pike went to walk in Jesus’s footsteps—and died not far from his rented Ford Cortina. She anatomizes the culture of shopping malls—“toy garden cities in which no one lives but everyone consumes”—and exposes the contradictions and compromises of the women’s movement. In the iconic title essay, she documents her uneasy state of mind during the years leading up to and following the Manson murders—a terrifying crime that, in her memory, surprised no one. Written in “a voice like no other in contemporary journalism,” The White Album is a masterpiece of literary reportage and a fearless work of autobiography by the National Book Award–winning author of The Year of Magical Thinking (The New York Times Book Review). Its power to electrify and inform remains undiminished nearly forty years after it was first published.

Epigenetics of Aging and Longevity provides an in-depth analysis of the epigenetic nature of aging and the role of epigenetic factors in mediating the link between early-life experiences and life-course health and aging. Chapters from leading international contributors explore the effect of adverse conditions in early-life that may result in disrupted epigenetic pathways, as well as the potential to correct these disrupted pathways via targeted therapeutic interventions.

This book will help researchers in genomic medicine, epigenetics, and biogerontology better understand the epigenetic determinants of aging and longevity, and ultimately aid in developing therapeutics to extend the human life-span and treat age-related disease.
